Partner Eugene T. Paolino was featured in a Globest.com article today regarding Baldwin Place, a nearly six-acre mixed-use redevelopment project in the Journal Square neighborhood in Jersey City, NJ that recently received site plan approval.
Mr. Paolino, a long-time participant in the redevelopment of Jersey City, described Baldwin Place during a presentation at the Jersey City Planning Board meeting this week.
“My take is that the design and development of Baldwin Place is an exciting and imaginative approach, not only in addressing the remains of our industrial heritage, but in doing so in a way that is appreciative and sensitive of the neighborhood,” says Paolino. “The redevelopment is thoughtfully designed to grow alongside the surrounding community, infusing quality housing options in a redevelopment site that has long needed attention in Jersey City.”
More than 4,000 new residences are currently planned for the Journal Square neighborhood in addition to Baldwin Place, including One Journal Square, a recently announced redevelopment that includes approximately 1,500 apartments and 100,000 square feet of new retail space and parking. Genova Burns also serves as counsel on the project. To read the entire article, please click here.
